Much better than no. 8 and infinitely better than Jd. I might give a slight edge to gentleman jack but it's close.

In my opinion, this is the best Tennessee Whisky. It's better than Jack or Gentleman Jack. It still has that slightly sour aftertaste of the other Tennessee Whiskys. It's definitely worth the price for a cheap, everyday drink. It's definitely not top shelf, wouldn't compare to a good similarly priced Bourbon like Buffalo Trace.

Put as simply as possible, this beats Jack Daniels at its own game and for less money. Put a little less simply, it's a tasty sour Tennessee style whisky with lots of lemon zing and some tobacco smoke, a drink with personality at a great price. Makes a nice whisky sour or Alabama Slammer, goes great with breakfast too. I know that sounds bad, but the truth is the truth.

One of my favorite whiskys. Its a bargain as well, you could pay a ton more and get a worse product. Definitely better than jack no.7

A very nice whisky at a very reasonable price. Available in 50ml- so try it!

I tried this after someone tried to convince me that it was better than Gentleman Jack. They were sorely mistaken. Dickel No. 12 had a terrible, chemically aftertaste to me, and it even smelled a bit funny mixed with Coca Cola. I'll stick with the Gentleman.

I consider this a kind of desert whiskey (or whisky, as theyd have you spell it), sweet through and through. Its heavy of vanilla and caramel scents, with maybe a hint of cinnamon. Beautiful when it hits the tongue- deep caramel and some malty confectionery flavor I cant quite place. A little sharp and dry when it finishes; not unpleasant, though it doesnt quite fit.
Overall, this is a solid and comforting concoction. You could pay more and still do much worse.

Some may consider it a bit light in body or find the dryness not to their liking. It is a good bargain for someone seeking a better whiskey for $20 or less. A good bit older and more drinkable than most in that price range. Also as noted above, it is a great substitute in a bourbon cocktail as many of the bourbons commercially available in its price range are young, raw, and give you a nasty hangover. If you want to think for yourself, buck the trend and drink a different Tennessee Whisky (for less money too) try this one.
